The 24-year-old forward has been a regular source of goals in the Scottish Football League over recent years and will now get the chance to push for a dream move to England.

A number of SPL sides were believed to be keen on taking a look at Doris, who recently caught the eye during a cup meeting with Celtic, but Birmingham have edged to the front of the queue.

Doris is to spend a week training with the Championship club and Arbroath boss Paul Sheerin is convinced his main source of goals can be a success at St Andrew's.

He said in the Daily Record: "Birmingham watched him a few times and saw him against Celtic. Now they want a closer look.

"He's been outstanding for the past few years and I'm surprised more Scottish clubs haven't had a nibble at him.

"He's good enough to step up and I know he won't let himself down when he goes to Birmingham."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
